Final Argument (Book 2)

A civil lawsuit turns decidedly uncivil when Daniel T. Scadman, the meanest lawyer in Colorado, is murdered during a pre-trial deposition at the office of Denver lawyer, Adam Larsen. As Scadman’s successor moves the case toward trial Larsen’s client, Josie Ballantine, who also happens to be his girlfriend, abruptly fires Larsen, placing her faith--and apparently much more--into the eager hands of her young insurance lawyer. After Larsen confronts a corrupt court reporter, someone tries to frame him for her murder. Before the fog clears, Larsen receives a desperate plea from Josie. A secret from her past has emerged, turning the Quinlan real estate trial into a disaster. Ready or not, Larsen must act.

Mystery lovers, meet your new hero, Attorney Larsen whose reputation precedes him. Meet his legal staff and settle in for a fun read about a case with lots of twists and surprises. Adam's girlfriend, Josie, is being sued in a case with others over a fire that destroyed a house owned by Jack Quinlan, owner of several furniture stores. The case goes from a lawsuit over money to one of murder when Quinlan's lawyer, Scadman the Madman, is found dead in Adam's library during a break in the taking of dispositions. The investigator into the case, Sergeant Stone who hates Adam, immediately tries to place the blame on him, but finds he can't and against good advice, does make an arrest. Meanwhile, Adam finds himself being sued by the dead lawyer's partner. Disgusted, he conducts his own investigation. This is what happens when he tries to do a good deed. This is a tale with lots of action, interesting characters who are each different and a balanced plot that will hold your interest. You will enjoy meeting Adam and his staff, and hate Attorney Scadman. A complex tale with plenty of twists, guaranteed to satisfy any mystery fan. I'm pleased to recommend this tale as one that will have you looking for other stories by talented author Kenneth L. Levinson. Enjoy. I sure did. Anne K. Edwards
